“Tourist Maps” of statistics on Slovenia

In Slovenia we’ve recently published the Interactive Statistical Atlas of Slovenia – an online tool for presenting statistical data on maps. It was basically developed for “tourists” (less experienced users), to help them view regional statistical data in a clear and easily understood way.

You can enter the application from the entry page.

The application was developed in cooperation with Monolit and Mapping Worlds. From the project leader point of view I can say the most challenging task was to keep it simple. That said, I’d like to thank Mapping Worlds for their fruitful cooperation and willingness to share their experiences and knowledge.

We are quite happy with the first version of the product and there are already plans how to improve its content and features. Last but not least, we’ve already received some positive feedback from Slovene bloggers, here my favourite one is translated from Slovenian:

One thought on ““Tourist Maps” of statistics on Slovenia”

  1. I think the Slovenian atlas is very well made, easy to understand, and well presented prominently on the front page of the office where it deserves to be. Congratulations! It seems to me to be the most accessible statistical maps from a NSO I have been able to find in the world – I may of course have missed some.
    I am studying this in order to prepare a strategy for maps in Statistics Denmark, and I am interested in hearing hints about other excellent maps. I would like to establish a discussion between people working actively with this. Could it be in this blog? I have noticed that many are doing similar things and probably wasting time.
